Sauté the onion till translucent. Add the grated paneer and season it with salt and chat masala.
To make paratha
Knead the dough once again and divide it into two portions. Roll each portion into a small chapati.
Put 1 portion stuffing in the center of the chapati. Gather the edges. Pinch it to seal and again flatten it out.
